Not necesarily. I think I can implement a program that
incorporates dynamic checks into a rules file, they are not mutualy
exclusive. Again, please don't take this discussion as us asking you
to spend loads of time on this that you don't have; if need be, we'll
(or at least, I can speak for myself) pitch in and help; at this
stage, however, I think it is important to identify what we perceive
as missing functionality.

Thank you. That is what we are trying to do: design
what we think may be an improvement, implementation will follow.
